Michigan Christmas tree farms are following guidelines to keep you and your family safe while finding your perfect Christmas tree. When vistiting the farm or retail lot, wear a mask, wash your hands and keep a 6-foot distance from other customers. Thanks for keeping it real this Christmas!
Real Christmas trees bring real joy! The warm tradition, joyful scent and natural beauty simply cannot be manufactured. Use the MCTA's choose and cut or retail locators to find the centerpiece of your Christmas tradition!
As many of you are heading out and picking that perfect real Christmas tree to trim, here is one more reason you are making the right choice. Real Christmas trees are 100 percent recyclable and biodegradable, making your Christmas green in more than one way.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The culmination of the Thanksgiving holiday has subsided and we are heading into a new season – Christmas. Meaning, it’s finally time to put up your fresh, real tree and decorate for the holidays.
The time has come to toss your artificial tree where it belongs – in the trash. Real Christmas trees need a little love and care, but nothing compares to the aroma of a fresh, Michigan grown Christmas tree in your home. With proper care, fresh trees are grown to last from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
Christmas only comes once a year so it’s important to select the perfect tree to decorate, but picking a tree suitable to display in your home can be a daunting task. Good thing Michigan trees come in a variety of species, sizes, and tree farms for you to choose from this holiday season.
Don’t judge a Christmas tree by its appearance. Michigan Christmas Tree farmers grow a variety of species each year. Some trees are ideal for heavy ornaments, while others bring a pleasent aroma into your home. It's important to select a tree that fits your needs. We put together a list of Michigan Christmas tree species to make finding the perfect Christmas tree simple. The following trees can be found at most Michigan Christmas Tree Association farms.
Trees during the winter season symbolize, joy, winter, and, best of all, Christmas. The magnificent Christmas tree has always been an imperative part of Christmas, or has it? Real Christmas trees date back many, many years but they had a difficult time reaching center stage.
